The Pipeline Project is sends two teams of five students to two Washington state schools (Quileute Tribal School, La Push & Brewster Elementary School, Brewster) during UW's spring break to work on an environmental education project. UW students will facilitate environmental science lessons with elementary and middle school students and have an opportunity to explore the local ecology and environmental issues of the region. This project is a part of the larger Pipeline Alternative Spring Break Projects that facilitate literacy/arts projects across the state of Washington.
Environmental ASB members will enroll in a 2-credit EDUC 401 preparation seminar during Winter quarter to plan, design and practice an inquiry-based, hands-on environmental science curriculum to be taught during spring break. Students will also explore issues of rural and tribal education in addition to the field of environmental education. In addition, students will tutor in a local environmental education program or classroom during the winter quarter for 2 - 2.5 hours/week.
